I have one of the worst problems/traits whatever you want to call it, ever. I'm a perfectionist. It's like the worst thing ever because it holds me back from so many things. If I can't do it perfect, then it doesn't get done, period. I'm afraid to try new things because I'm afraid I won't do it right. It's like a huge chain around my neck. I've been like this all my life. I'm sure if I were to go have some therapy, they'd dig up something from my childhood that caused it, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it would be. I was like this even as a child. I can remember writing an entire paper on notebook paper. I would get to the very last line. If I made a mistake, instead of marking a line through it, the whole page would get written over. OCD much?
I'm telling you this because it's held me back from lots of my quilting and crafty ideas, etc. I have a longarm machine with a Q-Bot. I've been soaking up every uTube and tutorial that I can soak up to learn how to use it. I'm afraid. My hubby promises me that it won't blow up. LOL He promises me that the longarm police won't show up to take me to jail. He is the best....he will try ANYTHING. I was horrified when he wanted to put down our laminate flooring and had never done it before. He read the directions and did it perfectly. He said the only way to learn is to try it.
Why am I like that? Can anyone relate? I am very blessed to have my own sewing studio filled with "to die for" quilting fabric, and everything else. I won a GO!Baby. Never taken out of the box. I have a Cricut. Never taken out of the box. I have enough fabric (literally) to open my own quilt shop (and I'm seriously not lying here). I want to PRODUCE like I see on all these blogs. It seems like every day there is something new that they have produced (hi Barb!). I spend more time organizing the stuff than using it. Stupid.
God has blessed me with the gift of creativity. I'm not using that gift to the best of my ability. I pray daily that He will help me with this.
Anyway, enough of that. I do have some pictures to show you of some purses I've made, but will save them for later. I have some organizing to do in my studio. LOL
I would welcome ANY comments from those of you that have the same problem, or if you have some suggestions, or just want to say hi!
Love and hugs from VERY hot and DRY Texas,
